I’m partial to a tart or two (gluten free)

Gluten free jam (and marmalade) tarts 😍

Earlier in the week I had a couple of disastrous attempts at gluten free scones, which upset me hugely. I have fond memories of growing up helping my nan bake scones and had thought they were one of my signature bakes. Today I decided to try something different, like scones I often made jam tarts with my nan so I thought I would attempt them!

To make these you will need:

A preheated oven to gas mark 5

– 150g gluten free flour

– 100g butter (cubed)

– 50g caster sugar

– 50ml cold water

– jams, marmalade, etc…

To begin mix together the flour and sugar in a bowl. Then add the cubed butter and rub in until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.

Then made a well in the middle of the bowl with a knife, then slowly add in the cold water. Bring the mixture together until it forms a dough.

Flour a surface and turn the dough onto it, kneading it a little until it is easier to work with. Once you can roll out the dough until it’s approximately a cm thick.

In the absence of a cutter I used a little wine glass – perfect for the shape needed for either scones or jam tarts. Place the cut outs into a greased tin.

I used a fork on the outsides of the tarts (it definitely gave them a rustic look 🙃).

Pierce the bottoms of each tart with a fork and spoon in the filling. The mixture easily made 12 tarts and I put the extra in a spare tin.

Bake the tarts for 20-25 minutes.

Once you have taken them out of the oven allow them to cool for a few minutes in the tins before transferring them to a cooking rack.

Nothing beats a warm jam tart with a little dollop of cream and a cup of tea, enjoy!
